For over 30 years, ILIR has offered classes to people who are curious and enjoy learning. Classes are small and interactive. Currently classes are on ZOOM.

Classes are led by volunteers . Presenters include university faculty, PhD candidates, non-profit executives, retired professionals, community activists, and authors. Classes change each session. Topics include current events, film, science, art, music, philosophy, government, and current issues. We welcome new presenters and topics.

What makes ILIR different from other lifelong learning programs?

ILIR is a community of people who enjoy learning. Classes are small and interactive. You can ask questions, hear what others are thinking, share your own point of view and get to know each other.

How many classes does ILIR offer?

We offer as many as 18 different morning and afternoon classes each week during our Fall, Winter, and Spring Terms of six to eight weeks. In our shorter Summer Term—usually four to six weeks--we offer as many as four different classes each week.

Can you give me examples of ILIR classes?

The ILIR schedule is an eclectic mix of classes that changes each session. Larger classes like Current Events, SPOTLIGHT: Science and Environment, SPOTLIGHT: Arts and Literature and Film Club are set up classroom style. Smaller classes like Poetry, Short Stories, Personal Essays, Healthy Relationships in Our Senior Years and You Can Ukulele meet around a conference table.

Do I pay for each class?

No, you pay just one single fee for an entire term. You can attend every class, as many as you wish.

Where are the classes held?

ILIR classes met at the Boca Raton Community Center in downtown Boca Raton. During COVID, ILIR classes meet on ZOOM. In Fall 2021, classes will be on ZOOM. You must register for classes in order to receive the ZOOM link to class.

Tell me about the course instructors

ILIR presenters are volunteers. They include retired as well as active professors and teachers, PhD candidates from Florida Atlantic University, health care professionals, community activists, government officials and others. ILIR SPOTLIGHT series feature a different speaker each week. ZOOM has enabled ILIR to recruit instructors from anywhere in the world. We are always open to volunteer facilitators with a passion for their subject.

Are there other benefits to attending ILIR?

Our members enjoy a sense of community and friendship as well as intellectual companionship. Some meet for lunch between morning and afternoon in-person classes. Some members also volunteer as presenters, join the ILIR Board, or contribute their talents in other ways.
